Other sources are confirming this. USATF did enter Lacy as the alternate, so she should be good to go.

From Jenn´s own Facebook page

"With the summer season being a focus for me – most importantly the Olympic Trials , I decided not to compete at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Turkey so I can prepare for the challenges ahead. Good luck to Team USA this weekend."
